Alarme Re-Enactment in Valletta


Alarme is a military re-enactment that displays the turbulent history of when Malta was ruled by the French, following Napoleon’s landing and conquest of the Maltese Islands in 1798. The show narrates the French troops’ arrival in Malta, their attempt to administer the Islands by the new Republican government, the rebellion that resulted in the blockade of French troops in the harbour towns, and finally the French troops surrendering to the British in 1800.

You can only visit Fort St. Elmo prior to Alarme re-enactment, so we advise that you go to Valletta well before and explore this historical fort.
